Just a quick not to let you know that I won’t be keeping the same RAPID posting and change rate I have for the past 6 months. I have a number of major research projects I am working on as well as I plan to spend a lot more time with my family over the summer months!
I’ve decided that I am going to reduce the amounts of post from 5-6 a week to 2-3, with the goal being a 2 minimum. I’ve been able to keep all my other goals for this news forum and website, so I believe that I should be able to do this, regardless of all the outside projects I have to work with. I am going to resume the normal post rate mid to late August (Just in time for Band Camp!).
So, I am going to plan on Mondays and Thursdays being the major post days and if I have another podcast or important item, it will probably come “up” on Fridays. Hope all of you have a great summer! Relax, and please keep commenting and being a part of our Global Conversation here at mustech.net!
